Psychoeducational assessments measure a child’s cognitive and academic strengths and weaknesses. If required, memory and attention strengths and weaknesses can also be assessed. Generally children are referred for these assessments when they are having difficulties at school, or they are doing very well at school and may be getting bored.
The aim is to provide a thorough assessment which takes into account information from a number of sources and considers different possibilities for difficulties. We aim to make recommendations that will assist children and their families to do the best they can do. We ask families and schools to give us feedback on the assessments and reports and try to use this information to improve our service .
